A week of Digital Reviews & GIVEAWAYS (Day 1)

As someone who considers herself well educated in the field of scrapbooking - I am a novice in the world of digital!  I always stayed as far away from digital as I possibly could and loudly professed to HATING everything about it!  Then I actually tried it a few years back.  Well it did help with time, mess, and organization I still felt I was missing out on the art of paper crafting.  I did not want to give that up - and I haven't.

I'm going to be away this week at our local fair and then participating in a Christmas Card Making day.  So instead of the usual posts this week I'm going to do something a little different.  We are going to explore DIGITAL!  YAY!!  Along with the exploration there will be GIVEAWAYS and who doesn't like FREE?  So stay tunned all this week for various digital venue information and a chance to win.  Don't forget about my monthly giveaway either!

Today I'm highlighting My Memories Digital Scrapbooking.  

The initial cost is $40 for the software kit.  This gives you the option to use ready made albums or design your own.  There are a ton of video tutorials out there and I really benefited from watching them.  Here is a link to the tutorials I found most helpful on youtube.  My Memories Suite Version 2 Tutorial (Part One).

Here is a photo of my first layout using their program.

What I love about this program is that there are a ton of Free frames, embellishments and kits that you can download right from their site and it looks like they update these Free kits often.  I also like that you can edit your photos right on the program and it does not take long to upload photos nor to edit them.    

Both of these pages were very easy to do.  The first one everything was already there with the Free frame and I just added the photos.  The second one I played around with a little bit and added the boat, net, shell, seagull and brads.

This last one I started from scratch and made the whole layout myself and it is probably my favorite!

Like I said it seems like they update FREE kits regularly - I just checked as I was posting this and saw some new ones I want to try out!  All of these pages were done with FREE kits after downloading the original kit.  I'm sure there is so much more you can do with this program - I'm just getting started!

Today My Memories is giving away a FREE software kit to one of my readers!  How to enter?

This giveaway will end on Monday, September 19th at midnight (EST).  As an extra bonus My Memories is giving you a coupon code that provides a $10 discount off the purchase of the My Memories Suite Scrapbook software and a $10 coupon for the store - $20 value!)

Have fun and come back tomorrow for another digital review!


  1. I love the colors of Roots and Branches.

  2. I'm following My Memories blog. My husband and I are think of downsizing and I know all of my craft room will not be able to go with us. I've thought of digital scrapping but I love to play with paper and glue. But, if I went digital, it would make more room for stamps. LOL! My Memories blog has lots of beautiful examples.

  3. I love I'm Falling for you. I hope I win so I can use it. :)
